White Sox Acquire Adam Eaton in 3 Team Trade

Lake  Buena Vista,  FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 
have  acquired Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Tyler Skaggs and Chicago White 
Sox southpaw Hector Santiago in a three-team trade. 

The  Angels sent power-hitting first baseman Mark Trumbo to Arizona, while the 
White Sox received outfielder Adam Eaton from the Diamondbacks. 

Arizona  also acquired a pair of prospects, one each from the Angels and White 
Sox, in the deal. 

Skaggs  was  selected by the  Angels in the first  round (40th overall) of the 
2009  amateur draft but was sent to Arizona as the player to be named later in 
the July 25, 2010 deal that landed Dan Haren in LA. 

The  22-year-old left-hander has made 13 starts since breaking into the league 
in 2012, going 3-6 with a 5.43 earned run average. 

Santiago,  a 25-year-old southpaw, appeared in 34 games with 23 starts for the 
White Sox last season and went 4-9 with a 3.56 ERA. Over two-plus seasons with 
Chicago, Santiago has gone 8-10 with a 3.41 ERA. 

Trumbo  notched  career-highs in  home runs  (34), RBI  (100) and games played 
(159) last season despite batting a pedestrian .234 with Los Angeles. 

Over   three-plus  seasons  with  the  Angels,  the  27-year-old  slugger  has 
registered 95 homers and 284 RBI while batting .250 in 460 career games. 

Eaton,  25, batted .252 with 10 doubles, three homers and 22 RBI over 66 games 
with Arizona last season.
